'No More Sheer-zinger': Nicole pokes fun at Ed Sheeran 'dating' and 'split' reports as she lip-syncs to Thinking Out Loud
Reports surfaced earlier this month that Nicole Scherzinger and Ed Sheeran were 'dating'.
But it wasn't long before the news was quashed as it was claimed the pair - who were said to have found love over a string of Pizza Express dates - had parted ways due to their insurmountable 13-year age gap.
And Nicole, 37, has responded to the claims in the best way possible, taking to Instagram to confirm the pair were never an item with a heartfelt lip-sync of 24-year-old Ed's power ballad Thinking Out Loud.

Pouring her heart out: Nicole Scherzinger uploaded a funny video to her Instagram account of herself lip-syncing to Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud, adding joke captions about their faux-mance
The former Pussycat Dolls star uploaded the amusing video alongside a few choice hashtags, writing, #TotesEmosh (Totally Emotional) that @teddysphotos and I broke up today #OrangeIsntTheNewBlack Anymore #ScherzyLosesItAfterSheeranBreakUp #NoMoreSheerzinger'
The video sees Nicole feigning upset while gazing into the camera and mouthing the lyrics, 'So honey now, take me into your loving arms', in time to the music.
The feisty singer was clearly making light of the constant speculation surrounding her love life since her split from on/off boyfriend of seven years, Lewis Hamilton, in January.

Her fans were quick to pick up on the joke, exclaiming, 'hilarious' and 'lmao', while some were slightly slower off the mark, asking, 'so they weren't together?'
Nicole has been focusing on her career of late and was seen heading to the airport, revealing she was 'On the road again' in a backseat limo snap.
The brunette and the multi BRIT Award-winning star were alleged to be 'in the early stages of dating' by The Sun a few weeks ago.

Nicole was said to have found solace in Ed's music after her break-up with Lewis, prompting their friendship to blossom into something more.
It was claimed she had joined the redhead backstage at one of his Wembley Stadium gigs last month and three days later he whisked her off to his home town in Suffolk, where they enjoyed a drink together at his local pub.
A friend of Nicole's allegedly declared: 'They're extremely close. Nicole says he is the male version of her.'
